Eh, I guess. He did fairly well on his own as an independent in his first appearance and such.

@  Otaku : (20 April 2018 - 10:04 PM)

@Sabrblade Vulture tends to fare poorly as his own boss. Working for a great version of Doc Ock ain't a bad gig... and I did ask if about "bad" as opposed to "not the best". ;)

@  Plokatron : (20 April 2018 - 09:53 PM)

@Egon1982 No my friend Mutator Spiders as in get caught in their web and you are mutated into a even more animalistic creature than you were. Hordika were Half Sentient beings half Wild animal and unlike Spiderman it affected each race slightly differnt with Toa being of a similar mutation to each other. My guess for Spiderman is he would become more spider like but with a inside skeletal structure hmm wonder what Visorak Venom would do to CNA make Dinobot Predacon like monsters or something wild?!

@  Paladin : (20 April 2018 - 04:15 PM)

compared to the "youth-sucking" gimmick from the other series? BIG step up.

@  Sabrblade : (20 April 2018 - 03:57 PM)

@Otaku: What about that show's take on Vulture? He had potential at first but he eventually just settled into being a lackey rather than his own boss.

@  Egon1982 : (20 April 2018 - 02:44 PM)

Did anyone else thought Thunder in Big Trouble in Little China when he was inflating looked like a garbage pail kid before he blew up into salad? I always thought that since seeing the movie in theaters at age 5. 

@  Egon1982 : (20 April 2018 - 02:25 PM)

Mutator spiders as in man-spider?

@  Otaku : (20 April 2018 - 11:06 AM)

Shocker was a pretty good villain in The Spectacular Spider-Man animated series. Wait, does that count since I can't think of a bad take on any character from that series? ;)

Webhead Vs. Mutater Spiders. Hmmm I can see this ending badly with HordikaMan Hey maybe it'd make Venom catchable with spider sense.

You know.. for all intents and purposes, Shocker should have won in Kamen Rider 71.

Forgive the jokes there but you made it clear you hated watermelons with how many you sliced, blasted and plain disintegrated on Tv. :thumbsup  (Why do we not have a Wheeljack salute emot?)  Simper-Fi Carry on Gunny see you up there in the great kingdom one day hope you enjoy the company of my great uncles and everyone who you saw last on that field of honor.

@  Bass X0 : (15 April 2018 - 03:52 AM)

Should we as a society change our way of life, culture and general thinking to that which people fifty years from now could look back without being judgemental of our ways? Today we look back at people from fifty years ago and openly criticise things that were considered acceptable and normal back then as not fitting in with our modern day standards that we have to censor them, or have the disclaimer that's just how it was back then. So surely things we as a population consider normal and acceptable today may not fit in with the standards of fifty years from now. But how do we know what would be acceptable and normal fifty years from now that we are supposedly doing wrong today? We don't. That's the point when we are applying modern day standards and way of thinking to a time fifty years ago.

@  Plokatron : (14 April 2018 - 11:09 PM)

Thank you my friend. I hope so too.

@  Maruten : (14 April 2018 - 06:58 PM)

Sorry to hear that, man. Hope things turn around and you have a great time at the con.

@  Plokatron : (14 April 2018 - 06:24 PM)

Ugh I have had a terrible week. My step mom goes to the hospital with high heart rate then has elevated blood sugar once they fixed her heart flutter. Then she is released last night and snaps her ankle bone so she needs to stay at her aunts till it is healed. Wouldn't be so bad if our half of the place was done and I was able to move in too but it's not and I hate being home alone codependency problems. I hope everything stays balenced for the next week since I got comic con to go to on the 21st. I am at least smart enough not to say a certain phrase cause I know if I tempt fate it will kick my but worse than Optimus did Megatron in the movie. Sorry for the long pity party post guys I know it's not liked but I hope a bit of venting is ok.

@  Rycochet : (14 April 2018 - 12:46 PM)

The past few system failures I've had that have lost files hae spurred me into a new burst of creativety, I soon fill up the space o a new hard disk with sketches and notes and other little things I do to stay sane.

@  Soft Snow : (14 April 2018 - 12:34 PM)

It's like a rebirth, a very sad, identity ripping, rebirth.

@  Soft Snow : (14 April 2018 - 12:33 PM)

Losing all the files I saved up over a decade gives me the chance to start afresh.

@  wonko the sane? : (14 April 2018 - 11:02 AM)

I don't want to lose the web comic I made, but I also rock redundant drives and off PC backups.

@  Fnu Aw : (14 April 2018 - 10:13 AM)

I don't have anything important enough to worry about losing. Go me!

@  Arazyr : (14 April 2018 - 09:39 AM)

At least that was BEFORE my kids were born, so no baby pics lost.

@  Arazyr : (14 April 2018 - 09:39 AM)

I had a catastrophic hard drive failure in early 2007, and lost almost EVERYTHING. I was lucky I had a couple of documents synced to a mobile device at the time. No getting the photos back, though.

@  Bass X0 : (14 April 2018 - 07:20 AM)

Yeah, I've lost a lot of stuff over the years due to not having backed up.

I think the concept of being educated and being able to educate is something that more people need more of in their lives.

No, we don't all know everything but we should spread and share that what we do know.

If I'm consistently misspelling a word, I would want and expect people to correct me as should I imagine all decent people who know the value of good literacy.

Its just arrogant laziness to know you're spelling a word incorrectly and not correct yourself or ignore the advice when people do tell you how to spell a word correctly.

That just reminds me of how "Medic" Hound had nothing to do with anything. I mean, nothing in TLK had anything to do with anything, but still. I think I completely forgot is was even a thing...

 

More paint aps and screen accuracy is fantastic, though.

I feel like I'm missing something on Nitro. :doh I can't get the cockpit section to sit completely flush with the rest of the fuselage without feeling like I'm squeezing the shoulder assembly hinges inside the body. All of the in-hand pics I've seen of Nitro's jet mode have said cockpit lined up properly, so I have to assume it's something I'm doing wrong. Am I neglecting a step that further compacts that shoulder assembly, or did I just get (yet another) defective unit?

That helped... somewhat. I still feel a bit of resistance, but not as much as before. Hopefully that doesn't mean I'm already starting to break something inside... :doh

Also, it's entirely possible that you got a misassembled Nitro, the left shoulder on mine was the wrong way around, which meant it couldn't fold in for jet mode. Fortunately, there was just screws in the way, so I could fix it myself. Not so with the MP Bee which had one of the hood hinges the wrong way around but which was pinned and riveted, so I had to get it exchanged.

The real problem is that it's very possible to have a part of one of the arms facing the wrong direction, and while almost everything will still work around that, you will never ever get the jet fully tabbed together while it's like that and you'll have no idea why. My experience was that the instructions were absolutely no help in determining what the orientation of what piece needed to be. I went through this for almost an hour the first time I tried transforming Nitro before realizing what had gone wrong.

TLK toys in general have been a trickle here. We got the opening push for wave 1 stuff and then little else.

Admittedly most of wave 1 doesn't sell, likely helped by the ridiculous pricing of all TF toys these days.

One store in my area sat with less than a case of Wave 1 for a few weeks before finally getting a case of Wave 2 around this last weekend.

Literally 11 weeks after I ordered most of Wave 2 from HasbroToyShop and that was after they'd been available on their site for at least 2 weeks.

This reminds me that the Wal-Mart nearest has sold through most of their wave 1 stuff and restocked... with Titans Return stuff and swapped the tags.  So, uh...  Yeah.

It is absolutely insane that we are weeks past the home release of the movie and the majority of the toys aren't out in many areas.

Seriously, how does Walmart not have 90% if their exclusives yet?!
